Re: Rotor grease



Hi Roy. I use Lithium grease in my HyGain Ham series rotors. I only buy used
and the first thing I do is tear them apart and change out the drive ring
gear. Then it's inspect the bearings, wipe off the old "gunk" and liberally
grease. The can I am using now is "Coastal" brand While Lithium Grease
which, I think, I picked up at our local VIP auto parts store. Don't really
know why they carry it since they don't rebuild rotors........
